We set sail at half-past morn,
Looking for a new tomorrow,
Don't know when we're coming home,
So we'll drink, and we'll dance,
And we'll drown our sorrow!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
Now, I don't know what there lies in store,
But it's better than this
That's why I'm willing ,
To stake my claim on a foreign shore,
Whit me spoons, and me fiddle,
And half a shlling!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
I dreamt a place,
I know it's true
Where the dolphins play and it's always sunny.
The girls are brown and the ocean blue,
Less work to do,
But you make more money!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
I must be off by morning's light,
I can hear our bo'sun's whistle blowing,
So its one more kiss,
And one more fight,
And one more song while the beer is flowing!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
When the sky is grey,
Look out to sea.
When the waves are high and the light is dying,
Well raise a glass and think of me...
When I'm home again,
Boys, I'll be buying!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
Weigh-hey! Hey Laddie Hey!
Weigh, hey, hey!
We'll drink the night away!
